In: 2016 IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM). . IEEE ISBN 978-1-5090-1329-6. E-ISBN 978-1-5090-1328-9. (doi:10.1109/GLOCOM.2016.7841879) (KAR id:60375)


Millimeter-wave (mm-Wave) systems with hybrid digital-to-analog beamforming (D-A BF) have the potential to fulfill 5G traffic demands. The capacity of mmWave systems is severely limited as each radio frequency (RF) transceiver chain in current base station (BS) architectures support only a particular user. In order to overcome this problem when high density of users are present, a new algorithm is proposed in this paper. This algorithm operates on the principle of selection combining (SC). This algorithm is compared with the state of the art hybrid D-A BF. The simulation results show that our proposed hybrid D-A BF using SC supports higher density of users per RF chain. Furthermore, our proposed algorithm achieves higher capacity than what is achieved by the current hybrid D-A BF systems.
